Currently head over heels OBSESSED with Sam Hunt.
His acoustic mixtape (below) is ALL I've listened to all week.
This Cedartown, GA boy has had a pretty strong grip on me. I wrote a bit about him before, when I mentioned how much I loved "Cop Car", which he co-wrote. After digging around, I learned that he had a hand/pen in Billy Currington's "We Are Tonight" AND the incredible Kenny Chesney f/ Grace Potter "Come Over". So yeah, the boy can write a song.
Sam is also skilled outside of the studio. He was QB1 at University of Alabama - Birmingham, after transferring from the hellhole that is Middle Tennessee State University. Yes, that's right. He plays football, writes incredible songs, and isn't hard to look at. OBSESSED.
Word on the street is that he just inked a major label record deal. I sure hope it's true, he deserves it. Can't wait to see what else comes from Sam this year, and beyond.
